Re: Has anyone tried an Astronaut / Space MRE's yet?

I've done a review on these on here as well . The meal I put together was a mix of actual cosmonaut food, and the commercial products (which I explained in the review). The cottage cheese and pork with vegetables were vending machine SpaceFood products, but the juice, tea and candy were the harder-...

Re: Help identify.

That large brown items may be a semi-sweet chcocalte bar, or another compressed food bar that's darkened over time.

Re: Ration Symposium Live Stream!

We didn't think of that in time, although I think it may have changed the atmosphere. The chance to kick back and enjoy some rations as a group without the need to explain or document the whole process for a change was a really unique experience.

Re: MRE Symposium and Meetup, Part 2

Yep - just the chat on the same page. It's to the right for me, but it'll differ with screen size/shape. Or you can ask anything here. Howdy by the way!
